Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge

Happy Friday! Well, actually I didn't have time to make a card for this month's PTI blog hop. I ought to get my craft space organized now that we bought some new shelves. I ought to put the washing on the line, I ought to clean out the dishwasher. Oh and some vacuum cleaning would be helpful, too! But who am I telling this :)

Here is the card I didn't have time to make:



This month's challenge is to use floss in a creative way. You think that tying it around the orange panel isn't very creative? Well, I agree! The creative use is on the couch. I covered a piece of cardstock with floss and die-cut the couch from it:


Then I stamped the image and colored the "feet" with copics. Here is the piece of cardstock after I die-cut it:



You'll find a list of all the participants on Nichole's blog. Although I am sure that there won't be much of a hopping now that the projects are visible via InLinkz... But a lot of eye-candy to be inspired from!

Have a fabulous day and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Supplies:
Everything PTI except for

Unbelieveable use of floss, so creative. That must have taken a lot of time to make. Such a good idea you had, never would have thought of it myself. Wrapping floss around the card would have been my big idea.
